Summary

Summary

Ten-year-old Nancy and eight-year-old Plum live in Mrs. Monday's Boarding Home for Children. Uncle John sent them there six years ago, right after their parents died. He thinks they are enjoying delicious home-cooked food and tender loving care. Instead, Mrs. Monday serves burnt oatmeal-if she hasn't already sent the sisters to bed without supper. Uncle John never sends letters or new clothes. Nancy and Plum must wear ragged dresses and stuff their worn out shoes with cardboard. But one Christmas they find a large empty box with their names on it. Do they dare confront cruel Mrs. Monday with their discovery? Betty MacDonald wrote the popular children's Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series and the well-known adult title The Egg & I. From bedtime stories she told her own daughters, she created this entertaining tale of two orphans overcoming obstacles. Nancy & Plum has been made into a play that continues to be performed in children's theaters throughout the United States. With her spirited narration, Kate Forbes brings the spunky children and the crafty Mrs. Monday to life.
